The Family Book | Todd Parr
post image

I really enjoy Parr‘s use of colorful illustrations. In this book, he describes different kinds of families, with the message that a family is a group you care about. I had thoughts of those who feel like they have no family - those living in horrid, difficult situations - so this narrative is rosy colored. However, I think it still demonstrates family type differences well.

Banned for referencing same sex parents. #BBRC #PictureBook Letter F

LibrarianRyan I was never the biggest fan of Todd Parr. He was really big when I was still a children's librarian. I loved his messages, just not his art. Is it bad I still feel this way? That being said, his books shouldn't be banned. 2w
Librarybelle @LibrarianRyan Definitely nothing wrong! I like the colors…I‘m drawn to very colorful illustrations. When I did storytimes, I would use illustrations like these to ask what colors the kids would see on the pages and have a quick color discussion. 2w

The Birthday Flowers | Cynthia Swain
post image

@Hooked_on_books Thank you for the beautiful birthday flowers! I‘ve never soaked flowers in the bathtub before, the cats and dog might think I‘m crazy 😝. They look great on my mantle and I will enjoy gazing at them as I read! Thanks for the audiobooks as well, you know I love to listen! I hope June is better for you. 💜. Coincidentally I have to go to the dentist today for the first toothache I‘ve ever had- I may be following in your footprints😬

tpixie Happy birthday!!!!! 🎁🎂🎈📚📚📚 2mo

Hooked_on_books You‘re welcome! Bummer about the tooth, though. The pain of the toothache was way worse than the actual procedure, which was no big deal other than the bill. 💸💸💸 Hope it‘s fixed fast and you feel better soon! Have a great birthday tomorrow! 2mo
Soubhiville @Hooked_on_books it turns out it‘s a small fracture, so I‘ll be getting a crown. 👑 yeah dental work isn‘t cheap! But it‘ll be fine, looking forward to getting it over with. Until then ibuprofen is my friend! 2mo

“Consider this my formal request for independence against the typical Western family story that creates consumption monsters. Built to consume. To hoard. To stockpile. To fight for their rights. To get what‘s theirs. To only use our family as a launching pad for the individual success of ourselves.” Jefferson Bethke

Stella Brings the Family | Miriam B. Schiffer
post image

4 ⭐ Stella‘s class is having a Mother‘s Day event, but Stella doesn‘t have a mother, she has two fathers. What should see do? This questions causes a week of worry until a friend suggests to bring all her family, and that is what she does. This book works, because it is a concern for many children missing “traditional” family members. This book gives a great idea of what a child stuck in this situation could do.
